No window shopping for Redknapp

Harry Redknapp does not expect Tottenham Hotspur to be involved in any late business before the close of the transfer window on Tuesday evening.

Spurs have been linked with a number of players this month, including Marseille striker Loic Remy and Blackburn pair Christopher Samba and Junior Hoilett.

But, with less than 36 hours now left to do business in the month of January, Redknapp isn't expecting to get anyone else through the door at White Hart Lane for next month after securing Yago Falque's permanent signature a fortnight ago.

He did admit to going on a small scouting trip last night, but didn't have his eye on any player in particular.

"I can't see an awful lot (happening)," Redknapp told reporters after the FA Cup win over Watford.

"I will probably watch a game on Sunday but not with a real eye on anyone, although I'm not going to tell you which match."

Tottenham booked their place in the last 16 of the competition after a 1-0 win at Vicarage Road on Friday night.

Rafael Van der Vaart's goal proved the difference against a stubborn Hornets side in north London, but it was defender Younes Kaboul who came in for particular praise from his manager following the victory.

"Kaboul has been absolutely terrific. That's why I signed him twice. He didn't have the best time when he was here the first time but he was only a young boy then," added Redknapp.

"I took him to Portsmouth. He was terrific there and that's why I really wanted him back. He showed last night exactly what qualities he has got. He is terrific defensively.

"I haven't really had to work on him, it's more about making him believe in himself. I have signed him twice, that shows how much confidence I have in him. He has been a terrific influence for us."

Next up for Spurs is the Barclays Premier League clash against Wigan, with Redknapp's side looking to maintain their challenge for the title at the top of the table.
